Calm Mind Meditation Workshop
Learn how to establish a regular meditation practice with Barbara Courtille
“Calm mind brings inner strength and self confidence, so that’s very important for good health” – Dalai Lama
Meditation takes on many forms but at its root it is a simple practice, simple but not easy. Like all yogic practices, it is experiential and needs to be practiced on a regular basis.
The more we practice meditation, the more we are able to witness its benefits in our daily lives. There are many ways to approach meditation and this workshop is designed to encourage participants to try various methods and find what works best for the individual.
This workshop will explore 4 different ways to meditate:
1. Pancha Kosha meditation – we peel through the different layers of the body starting from the outer physical body and gently moving towards our blissful centre.
2. Chakra meditation – focussing on the energetic body, this is a guided meditation which includes visualisation and chanting.
3. Vipassana – from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, this classic meditation method is a combination of concentration and mindfulness to bring us fully into the present moment.
4. Yoga Nidra – this guided body scan practice known as yogic sleep brings us into a deep relaxed state.
